BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — It’s been exactly seven months since two young boys from California City were reported missing. The search for them continues.
The two boys, Orson and Orrin West, were reported missing Dec. 21, 2020 — 212 days ago, and police have yet to find them.
Tonight, the family gathered outside of the Bakersfield Police Department on Truxtun Avenue to host a prayer vigil for the boys. Rosanna Wills, biological cousin of Orson and Orrin West said she “just wants to keep their name and story alive…and to let the community know we are still looking for them.”
Friend of the family, Keisha Stevenson, said that over the seven months the boys have been missing there has been “little to no updates on the case.” She continued “somebody knows something…we want answers.”
Bakersfield police are in charge of the investigation.
Wills asks that the community “share the flyer, if you know something say something, and continue to pray for the boys…we have to continue to pray because prayer is powerful.”
Anyone with information on the boys or their disappearance is asked to call the Kern Secret Witness hotline at 661-322-4040. The reward for information leading to the boys whereabouts is set at $125,000.
